Malaak II pp26-27 by Majnouna Malaak II pp26-27 by Majnouna
I'm posting these 2 pages together, the way they're supposed to appear in print. These are special to me and heavy with symbolism.
Inappropriate remarks will be shot down mercilessly.

Page 27 is available on its own as a poster; noet me for more info!

I forgot the name of this winged, horse-like sea being, but it's simply gorgeous!

They are magnificent, and I love the way you captured the vastness of the sea and the feel of the sea in them.

You have no idea how much a love page 27! I think it's my favorite page in the series so far! Absolutely gorgeous. However when I first saw it on the site by itself it had a lot more impact for me. Surrounded by the natural black of the site's color, it was extra ethereal and mystical. Great job. :heart:

Awesome, and I think a lot of people share that feeling :) Yes it's true, which is why I'm making it available as a standalone poster :D

Simply stunning.

I love how you mix photographs with your work and manage to make it all fit together. Must take a lot of time and effort to accomplish that.

And the second page is simple (lack of dialogue and such), but that makes it all the more powerful.

...pretty.

You have an eye for color. The blues here are gorgeous, and I love the effect of the glow underwater on Malaak's skin. Also cool was the balance of earth and sky, in all these shots--even the last page! It's kind of reminiscent of astronauts out spacewalking, that same slow, drifting grace.

The second page would make a great t-shirt...

Love the contrast between this page and others, this is so calm, and Malaak usually is so dynamic!

J, these two pages are just flat-out gorgeous! I love the peace and feel of wisdom and age you've given the sea. The appearance of the sea's avatar in the second page is achingly beautiful.

The color palette is deep and intense, yet strangely translucent, too.

My favorite set of pages thus far!
